Bottled, FiftyFifty 2010 Imperial Eclipse Stout (Evan Williams Single Barrel), thanks baggio! Very black, no head. Distinct bourbon aroma. Full bodied with well rounded mouthfeel. Warming and pleasant with milk chocolate, licorice and bourbon. The bourbon marries this imperial stout exceptionally well. Damn good!

Bottle from The Gull, North Vancouver; vintage 2016
Black color, large beige head. Mild aroma of roasted malts and alcohol. The dark malt flavor is really good, some dark caramel, mild roastiness, very moderate sweetness, but somehow juicy, with very light barrel character, and very light vinous note in the final.
Very good, not worth the 40$ price tag though.
